You might not know this, but for years and years. The undersea treasures of the Ionian Sea were off-limits to divers. Then, in 1996, the Greek government removed restrictions on where you could dive. The crystal clear seas around the Greek Islands therefore became a haven for scuba diving. …
Try some holiday activities, while on your holidays. Some people like to go on holiday and just relax. They like to lay in the sun, by the sea with a good book and a cool cocktail. Other people get bored with this very quickly and need something to occupy themselves with. For this reason, on a yacht charter holiday, we have activities which you can get involved in if you wish.
Around the Greek Islands, the water is crystal clear and warm. This makes it an ideal time to get in it and explore what lies beneath the surface. You can do this with very little equipment, by snorkelling. A snorkel is just a short pipe with a mouthpiece. Which when worn with a mask, allows you to lay in the water, face down and see the incredible marine life below. Try it while you are on holiday, its an ideal way to cool off in the hot summer sun.
Scuba diving is the next step, from just snorkelling. With a bit more equipment and some professional instruction. The crystal clear, warm water is also an ideal time, to have a go at this exciting sport. On board our luxury yacht, we have all the equipment. Your Captain is a qualified advanced British Sub Aqua Club Instructor and has worked as a commercial diver.
We have several windsurfers on board, which can be used by either a complete beginner or a more advanced windsurfer. On a yacht charter holiday, we anchor in different bays and harbours. So there is a lot of opportunities to windsurf, every day. You could go from a complete beginner to an accomplished windsurfer, during your holiday.
There are some incredible places to visit, while you are on a yachting holiday. You do not have to stay on-board. You can go ashore at any time to explore the islands and their Flora and Fauna. There is an amazing variety of wildlife in Greece. Some of the islands are uninhabited, so the wildlife lives undisturbed. You could see turtles swimming with their young. Or migratory birds stopping over at an island while on a passage to some distant land.
This is just some of the activities you can try while on a yacht charter holiday.
Diving Corfu, with Deep Blue Yachting. We have a bit of a soft spot for Corfu, close to our home of Lefkada. It was once the island we sailed from some years ago. It is a vibrant and exciting place to be. Many times we set sail for this much loved island, famous for its nightlife, historical …
Water sports on Lefkada's Shores We at Deep Blue Yachting love Lefkada. We might be a little biased since it is where our yacht, the Glaros, moors up before we set off on new adventures, but there is more to it than that. Lefkada is an exciting place, filled with culture, great natural beauty, and …
